Wine Enthusiast, May 2012
(WE94-96 points) Big and powerful this is a wine that is supported by dense tannins. The feeling is dry and firm with a brooding black-currant character.

Open and inviting with almost gushy blueberry fig and boysenberry fruit at first. But then there's lively acidity stitching the finish together with bouncy spice and anise notes and a streak of graphite that should emerge...   Open and inviting with almost gushy blueberry fig and boysenberry fruit at first. But then there's lively acidity stitching the finish together with bouncy spice and anise notes and a streak of graphite that should emerge more through the élevage. This has some serious range echoing with fruit and spice.-J.M.

It possesses a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a distinctive/singular style only possessed by the greatest wines. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades. It promises to be one of the longest lived wines of the vintage. At 14.7% alcohol, this is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. 94+ - Robert Parker

It retains fine definition and is not overpowering. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a very fine structure and great symmetry. This is an excellent Saint Emilion for the vintage that has a lovely caressing finish that belies its backbone. Superb.

A seductive spice and black tea edge emerges on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2027. –JM

From there you find a medium/full-bodied, firm wine with sweet, dark cherries, smoke, flowers, licorice, chalky tannins and a blast of cherries in the finish. Give this perhaps 7-9 years before pulling a cork. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2011&wine=Chateau%20Beausejour%20(Duffau%20Lagarrosse)

This is a little hard and firm now but it is so serious. Full body with firm tannins and a flavorful, intense finish. Excellent style and class. Needs five years to soften: better in 2019.
